I have a regular GR8, thinking about the new one w/vents vs dropping a bundle on the SpeedAir. Anyone have a GR8 w/vents? Do you notice a real difference? it seems like the vents are pretty narrow, and covered inside anyway.
The Charles Owens vents are useless...the SpeedAir is pricey but has a lot of circulation, sits a bit higher on the head to allow air around the neck etc.and stands up well to sweat etc...easy to clean...have been very satisfied with the SpeedAir after trying both...and the black on black can be used in equitation and hunters as well as the jumpers...(and no, we do not own stock in either company!! )
